The ease of training new employees, the ability to connect to most any 3rd party shopping cart, the EDI functionality. The auto-billing feature is an enormous time-saver. I really appreciate that 3PL Central is also looking to improve their software and will take input from their clients as to updates and changes that would be beneficial.

Likes Least

3PLCentral is constantly making improvements and updates to make the system more efficient, user friendly and to meet the changing demands of the 3PL market. That being said, their documentation and notices surrounding the updates could improve dramatically.

Recommendations

Map out your entire process and then review how 3PL Central mandates the process to be performed. I would suggest being open to changing your own process as generally speaking 3PL Central methodology is clean with little to no redundant actions. There are cost savings relative to labor to be found - if you look.

API integrations to shopping carts & OMS's, automated capture of billing events, automated email notifications, FTP export automation, client-facing visibility & inventory related reporting, RF functionality is good not great, customer support is very responsive.

Likes Least

SOAP APIs need better documentation (hopefully improved in new REST APIs), system can be slow during peak times (Monday mornings), need more focus on B2C pick & pack functionality (pick strategies, replenishment, location-based allocation options).

Recommendations

Run through your workflow on demos, don't be afraid to adjust your workflow to software capabilities instead of the other way around.

Some features (such as item setup) requires not-straightforward operations.
Lacks some important capability such as audit trail for master file update.
Not optimized for huge warehouse operations.

They have a true cloud based WMS solution that we can access anywhere. The user interface is easy to navigate and understand. Support inquiries are handled quickly and professionally. System feels like 100% up-time. Regular updates and feature enhancements. All reports are customizable to fit our needs.

Likes Least

The look of the software could be refreshed, but they are already working on it from what I understand. That being said, their current look is much newer than other WMS solutions we experienced/reviewed/demoed.

Recommendations

A true SaaS solution is the best way to go! Don't get fooled into a vendor hosting your version of the WMS on their servers. Count the number of clicks it takes to complete and inbound/outbound. Bells and whistles don't matter if the core functionality is not solid. Ask to talk with one of their current customers as a referral. Ask why their last customer ended relationship with them.

We like the ease of set up, use, and that 3PL Central is cloud based. No servers or software updates to worry about. Our staff and our clients really enjoy the access and ease of use. My staff and I can look take care of orders and inventory questions immediately in real time. The auto notifications are great that can be set up to notify clients of activity. The system is pretty well designed and has been very reliable.

Likes Least

When asking for help or working through issue your request drops into a cue and you don't always get the same support tech. It would be nice to assign a primary staff member to an account. I understand the challenges of managing this but it would be a plus and could lead to improved productivity by the 3PL Help Desk Support staff. Overall I've been pleased with how most of the issues have gotten resolved (there haven't been that many). Thankfully!

Recommendations

Some people might shy away from "cloud" based solutions! Don't! You NEED TO BE LIKE A MOTH to a FLAME! it's the only way to go!
